A press conference for the Earth Hour 2018 event was held at the Environment Ministry on March 21. Staged in front of the ministry offices, the event was jointly organised by the ministry, WWF Cambodia (World Wide Fund for Nature) and EcoLife Cambodia, with funding and support from Tiger Beer, Cellcard, and many other private companies and institutions.

WWF’s Earth Hour 2018, held on March 24, was aimed at bringing people around Cambodia and the world together to connect with environmental issues and causes. Every year it sparks open social conversations about biodiversity to make people aware of how we are a part of biodiversity and biodiversity is a part of human well-being.

Khut Chandara, undersecretary of the Environment Ministry, said Earth Hour is held to show that the ministry and the public really care for the environment and natural resources, and to remind them that they need to make an effort every day, not only for one day or for this hour.
